This year we offer a unique opportunity to a group of 45 dancers to meet and train whilst focussing on the creation process behind Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s repertoire. The mentors of the program are Eastman artists Navala ‘Niku’ Chaudhari and Damien Fournier, who will provide professional guidance and feedback. Their experience as dancers in Babel(words), Puz/zle, Origine and Myth will be the starting point for the creation workshops. In the morning we offer a variety of guest classes by Eastman dancers and professional teachers. All participants follow the same curriculum during this year’s edition.
The Eastman Summer Intensive is part of the Summer School of deSingel International Arts Campus in Antwerp.
